  • Markham Chardonnay

 Product Description

Grown predominately in the Oak Knoll AVA, our two estate vineyards provide a stylistic tropical flair to our Chardonnay. Our Oak Knoll ranch was originally planted with both Wente and Dijon clones; however our newer planting at both vineyards comprise of both field selections, Robert Young and Clone 4. Fluffy bale loam soils dominate while our Trubody estate has heavier soils, which we balance by utilizing no-till cultivation and deficit irrigation. Both vineyards sit at the edge of the fog intrusion zone and benefit from the cooling breezes during the harvest season. Partial malolactic fermentation provides texture to our wine while still allowing the natural acidity to shine.

Bananas Foster has a toasty, brown sugar and sweet banana aroma profile that is also found in our 2016 Chardonnay. A bit of minerality emerges over the toasty oak and honey, while tangerine mixed with juicy pear round out the palate. The entry comes across both rich and creamy, but finishes with a decided brightness necessary for pairing with a meal. A Caesar salad with grilled chicken or popcorn shrimp and a generous decoration of avocado would be delicious and easy to prepare tonight!
